Black Fly Bourbon - Spirits Worth Raising

Black Fly Bourbon

Black Fly was founded in 2013 by Keith and Steph Hadik. Their Gristmill distillery is wholeheartedly New York from grain to finish. Nestled in the Adirondack mountains, the rustic facility sources provincial ingredients for their handcrafted whiskeys, stating We source locally, we mash locally, and we distill locally. In 2007, New York State passed the Farm Distillery Act, which made distilling accessible to smaller businesses, it was after this law was passed that Keith Van Sise pursued a license to operate a New York State farm distillery. Gristmill encapsulates Upstate New Yorks rich agricultural heritage. The company, combining their love of whiskey and fresh mountain air, distilled their first spirit, a corn whiskey, at the end of 2014. Rusty Piton Corn Whiskey was released April 2016. Committed to distilling quality brandies and whiskies, Gristmill stresses the importance of local ingredients, using water sourced from a spring within a few paces of their facility.
